    If there is no temperature probe on the existing relief valve, you could add a long T&P valve into the tank opening with a 3/4-inch street tee and then add the old 70 psig pressure relief in the branch. Harold this is true BUT dont you think you should have added that the T&P valve Probe SHALL BE located in the uppermost 6″ of the tanks hottest water AND the Probe should be EXTRA long to make sure it is immersed inside this hot water to make sure it does sense the hottest water?

    Even a few inches in a closed tank can make a big difference in actual temperature.

    The problem with MOST cold water “relief” valves is there is no means to test them.

    Have a FANTASTIC week end Harold
